Midlife can be a woman's halftime celebration. Not only can it be an opportunity to reflect on and rejoice in the life you've lived, but it is also a good time to plan your strategy for the future. It's impossible to envision the second half of life without thinking about your health, especially your risk of developing debilitating or life-threatening diseases in the future. Around age 50, the medical decisions are changing and coming more frequently - when to have a mammogram, colonoscopy, or bone density test, for example. You may be trying to decide whether to have bunion surgery, or a knee replacement. Or you may be puzzling over the best way to manage your arthritis or irritable bowel syndrome.
